This young adult novel was at times endearing, heartbreaking, and overall charming. There was plenty of angst, romance, mean girls, and life problems to go around, but the characters felt so real I was almost afraid I was back in high school again:) That said, I would definitely recommend this book to any teen girl or young woman. It doesn’t sweep tough issues under the carpet as though they don’t exist, but it doesn’t glorify them either. The author writes about underage drinking, dating, and broken families with finesse. This novel made me laugh and cry, and trust me that is no easy feat.
